Also some of my articles are pending for approval since 30th September and how could techualtor team announce payments before reviewing my articles which are submitted in the month of September.
Actually what I observed till now is that practice which approves all the articles first and then they announce the payments for the same.

And coming to the announcement, it is made before the review of articles. I think it is done to reduce any delay in payments.
